saying, that there are no geographic limitations. they also, then, say that the laws of war apply. the laws of war basically mean that you don't get due process. and i can understand that in a battlefield. i'm not for reading miranda rights to people that are shooting at us. if you're an opposing soldier, you shoot at me, we kill you. there is no miranda rights. nears no jury, no trials, no due process. but they say america is the battlefield. that's a huge mistake. and i think most americans would disagree with them if they knew the implications. >> john brennan whose nomination to lead the cia was temporarily blocked by rand's filibuster was confirmed yesterday by a senate vote of 63-34. in fact, both mccain and graham voted to support brennan with graham calling it, quote, a referendum on the drone program, adding that before the filibuster, he had planned on voting no. that infuriated supporters of rand paul who launched an online movement with the hash tag primarygraham. they hammered him for dining in a d.c. restaurant while at the same time paul was questioning the administ

this last year -- going forward, if there is a difference, if you can craft that in law where you can have a path to citizenship where there isn't an incentive for people to come illegally, i'm all for it. i don't see how you do it, but i'm not smart enough to figure out every aspect of a really complex law. but i think the premise should be -- this should be a forward leaning immigration reform. what's it going to look like five years after you pass the law? you want aspiring immigrants to come to rebuild our demographic base. you want people to come that have skills that can make a difference to jump start our economy. and you don't want a repeat of the last 30 years where you have people coming in illegally or waiting in line. >> you talk about this -- we started campaigning together in 1994. you started warning republicans back in 1994 of the growing number of hispanics that were going to get out there. >> a good thing, by the way. >> yeah, a very good thing. but my gosh, 16, 17, 18 years later after you were issuing those warnings we got beaten because we did so poorly with hispanic v

states, the rules would be different because u.s. forces would have, in terms of law enforcement or even military, much greater access. so he kept talking about not killing someone, an american, at a cafe, in their home when they're sleeping. at times when there is not an imminent threat. it is a very narrow piece of the argument. but as the hours went on and on, more members of the senate seemed to support the stand he was taking. and just so everyone is clear, you cannot sit down. and you effectively cannot stop talking, although other members came in and did sort of speechify a little bit to give him a break. some brought him throat lozenges and water, and he had a candy bar or two that he would quickly take a bite of, but he was never allowed to leave to use the restroom. close to 13 hours. people respected the effort in that. it is a very narrow issue. he kept saying, why is it difficult for the administration to answer the question, if it's not an imminent threat, if it is an american citizen who is not immediately plotting something, why can't they say that fifth amendment rights

8. >> prop 8 was the california law that banned gay marriage, and it's been struck down and deemed unconstitutional by the lower courts. and it will be in front of the supreme court this spring. we have some friends who -- ken mehlman has spearheaded the effort to bring republicans along. it really has done a real service to the party, because i think this is the direction that the country is heading. and i think some republicans have felt for a long time -- and maybe we've been too quiet about it -- but it felt if you really revere marriage and you really think marriage is this great constitution that stabilizes society, that children should be raised in homes where their parents are married, then you should be the most zealous and outspoken advocate for gay marriage because you should believe that marriage is that great institution in which -- on which all families should be built. >> who are some republicans who have signed this? >> steve hadley, former national security adviser to president bush, james comey. meg whitman. former gubernatorial candidate. so it's a large group. a

implementation, but you can't delay beginning to wire it into the law. the longer we push it off, the longer then, again, we have to delay its impact, and that's the trouble. but you're exactly right in terms of the timing and the sequencing here. >> and you know, mika, richard is right. i did have a debate, and there's been an ongoing debate about how reform entitlements. i say we need to start reforming now. others say we can wait for quite a long time. a decade, even. we have to have the lead time to be able to tell americans how medicare is going to change, how social security's going to change. we've got to start by telling seniors, you're not going to be impacted. if you were born in the 1960s, you know, then, yes, we're going to have to talk to you about some changes we're going to make. if you were born in the 1970s, your benefits are going to be different from seniors right now. the key political item -- and again, we're worrying about the long term. as i've been saying nonstop for five years, it's the long-term debts that kill us. let's plan for the long term and do it in a way that giv
